Details

Geometric shapes of varied colors come together to form an Andean patchwork, depicting a harp player focused on her beloved instrument. The harp plays an integral role in Peruvian folklore, its beautiful melody drifting easily through the mountainous landscape. Vegetable dyes color the wool, producing spectacular designs carefully woven by hand on a loom.

Titled "La arpista" in Spanish.

"Amazing artist"

I hung this in my bedroom so it is the first thing I see in the morning and the last thing I see at night. I dont know how she captured the magic of this sacred place with bits of wool, but she did. She is really a gifted artist.
